My Locale John S. hasn't told us about their geographical region yet.
About Me Originally from Louisiana, I enjoyed camping in my Boy Scouting days and eventually became an Eagle Scout. Many years later (2002), I discovered backpacking after going on an REI multisport trip to Alaska. My first backpack was to Grand Canyon, and I was hooked!

Re: Lightweight merino / fleece beanie hat?
Another favorite 1.0 oz fleece beanie is the one made by mountain hardwear often found for around $10. Currently, I am wearing the Montbell fleece beanie.

Re: Re: all-round travel pack
Ben, and seven days of food? Sounds too small of a pack for weeklong backpacks.

Re: Search and Rescue for Sale - WIRED article
Thanks for sharing Rex. I know one of the MD's that works with GR and will forward for his opinion. Their website seems down at the moment to read the link.
